The 26 inch Expandable Telescopic Baton is an effective self-defense weapon for personal protection. Chances are good that simply having the baton will be enough of a deterrent to get any predator to back down and leave you alone. But if you do need to use it, it’s a non-lethal weapon, so you will know you are protecting yourself without using deadly force. This baton is easy to use and carry. It folds up into a very portable size, so you can keep it with you at all times. All it takes is a simple flick of your wrist to open up the baton to its full 26-inch size. The weapon is made out of solid steel and has a truly formidable appearance when opened at maximum length. The tip of the baton is designed to provide a potent impact when it is swung at any target, so it can easily stop any attacker. The length of the weapon lets you use it against a predator at a distance, so they won’t be able to strike back, and the rubberized handle makes keeping your grip extremely easy.
